"All of these renditions were note-perfect... Throughout the evening, the musicianship was extremely strong. There are few better ways to spend an evening than to hear Joni Mitchell's music done well." -- jonimitchell.com

“An uncanny interpreter of Mitchell’s canon”

- New Yorker Magazine

“An extraordinary voice.”

“A musician on a mission”

- Wall Street Journal

Celebrating 12 years of "Both Sides Now: The Music of Joni Mitchell," Hannah Reimann's critically acclaimed show has presented over 40 songs from seven albums of the iconic Mitchell's discography since 2012. Her All-Star Band performs authentic versions in their original keys and arrangements from the albums Court and Spark, Blue, Ladies of the Canyon, Clouds, For the Roses, The Hissing of Summer Lawns and more.

2024 Marks the 50th anniversary of Mitchell's most commercially successful album, Court and Spark, and the ensemble will present a selection of songs from that record, most in the order of the record for diehard Joni fans.

Reimann is a Music Grantee of the Cafe Royal Cultural Foundation and will be performing a song featured on her new EP, "Take Me To The Sun," at this show, with thanks to the Foundation for help with the recording. She began her retrospective of Mitchell's music to heal her broken heart while her dad was dying from dementia and while she was directing the related documentary film, "My Father's House, A Journey of Love and Memory" (distributed by terranova.org).

She is also the Artistic Director of Stretto Piano Concerts and The International Stretto Piano Festival which she founded in 2021 to create as many worldwide concerts using stretto or narrow-key pianos and to stimulate the production of stretto pianos by all piano manufacturers. She rebuilt her Steinway grand piano in 1997 to have 5.9-inch octave keys, which is much easier to play than the standard 6.5-inch instrument for many pianists, and was featured on the front page of the Wall Street Journal as "a musician on a mission."

Audience members will be invited, one by one, to try the piano on the stage when the concert is over and much more about stretto pianos will be shared at every concert of the festival. strettopianoconcerts.orgwww.hannahreimann.comstrettopianoconcerts.org
